Alice in Football Land – plays for children

ALICE IN FOOTBALL LAND – PLAYS FOR CHILDREN

 children's plays

This fast paced retelling of the classic Alice in Wonderland is updated to modern times and set in a football stadium, where the Riverdale Rabbits are facing their rivals, the Duncan Dormice.

Alice, cheerleader for the Riverdale Rabbits, falls from the top of the pyramid and finds herself lost in the stadium desperately seeking Tod (the star quarterback) her ‘true love’. Along the way she encounters a strange group of characters; a coach who can’t control his players, a band leader whose band plays animals as musical instrument, the water boy who only serves water at his tea party, the referees who can’t decide what penalty to call, and the Cheshire Brand Hot Dog vendor who gives her cryptic and confusing clues. As Alice finds what she searches for, she realizes that she was chasing after the wrong things the whole time.

Alice in Football was performed at the Parkside Playhouse, Vicksburg, MS, June 24-26, 2010.

JACK MASTERSON AND THE CASE OF ABSURDITY – A TWO ACT TEEN FARCE

In this two act farce, Jack Masterson has just started a private detective agency with his friend Lisa and they are awaiting their first case when Miss Lovely walks through their door in need of assistance.  It seems that a priceless family heirloom of Miss Lovely’s has gone missing and she needs Jack to find it for her.  Jack gladly accepts the case and starts by checking out the scene of the crime and questions Miss Lovely’s maid, Yvette and her obnoxious neighbor Sandra Moody.

Jack comes to the conclusion that his old nemesis, Professor D. Veous must have some information on the whereabouts of the missing heirloom.  While Jack goes off to question the Professor at his headquarters underneath the local Happy Hamburger Hut, Lisa goes down to Club Shady to question some of the local thugs about the theft.  While there she runs into Jack’s biggest rival Detective O’Malley who decides to help her out questioning the criminal element.  What heirloom could possibly worth so much trouble?  With three different endings it could be anything!!!
